    Job Title*: Short-term Consultant for Data Scrapping/Mapping Project - GRID Alternatives
    Job Description: GRID Alternatives, the nation's largest non-profit solar installer, seeks a consultant for a data scraping/GIS project. The end project goal is a set of spreadsheets that present street-address data in a format that can be visualized in a GIS software. These street addresses consist of about 40 large pdf files inconsistently formatted across documents. The consultant must be able to scrape the street address ranges from pdfs into a spreadsheet format that can be geocoded.

    This data will ultimately be used to create a California SASH/Cap & Trade geodatabase that is accurate at a local scale and legible at regional scales.

    Depending on the timeline/scope of the project, the final deliverables may include (by priority):

    1) Spreadsheet data for all CA SASH and Cap & Trade eligible street addresses and census tracts

    2) Geocoded address Shapefiles or geodatabases from the Enterprise Zones/Empowerment Communities/Targeted Employment Areas/Qualified Census Tracts of CA

    3) Shapefiles for all CA SASH and Cap & Trade areas (GRID has some of this information completed already)

    Web Applications Team Description
    The Web Applications Team is responsible for serving the Institute and external user community’s web application needs through collaborative engagement on some of the most important projects affecting our state’s aquatic resources. The team synthesizes complex tabular data and geospatial information into user-friendly, interactive tools, designed to facilitate decision-making at the watershed, regional, and statewide scales. Furthermore, the Web Applications Team always strives to improve and innovate. It continually re-evaluates its own processes in a bid toward greater development efficiency, sustainability, and product ease-of-use. The team is part of the Environmental Informatics Program which focuses on providing clients and partners with the most current tools available to meet the Institute’s mission.

    About SFEI
    SFEI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides science to support environmental decision-making and management. Our science informs policy-makers, resource managers, stakeholders, scientists, and the broader public. SFEI typically engages with organizations and individuals of diverse perspectives, priorities, and backgrounds to understand their information needs and how best to meet those needs.

    The work of the Environmental Informatics Program is integral to how SFEI communicates findings and disseminates data and information. For instance, SFEI is a California Environmental Data Exchange Network (CEDEN) partner and serves as a one of California’s four Regional Data Centers for management of surface water quality, wetlands and spatial data. SFEI has developed and hosts multiple web sites that provide access to environmental data and information. The Institute has a strong history of tool-development expertise including EcoAtlas, an innovative resource used by state agencies to determine wetland extent and condition, and the Contaminant Data Display and Download tool, a map- and chart-based visualization utility and data distribution resource. We strive to help natural resource managers and scientists achieve greater insights using the products that the Institute builds.

    We have the hardware, tools and, most importantly, knowledgeable staff to ensure that monitoring data and findings and other relevant information are useful and broadly accessible to a range of technical and non-technical users.
